Any injury in sports can be tough to see. There is immediate heartbreak when a player goes down and doesn’t get back up. This evening, Kemba Walker suffered an injury that was particularly difficult for anyone to see. The Boston Celtics were in Denver taking on the Nuggets in a battle of 3-loss teams. After a head to chest collision with teammate Semi Ojeleye, Walker laid motionless on the floor before being taken out on a stretcher. There is speculation that the injury sustained is reminiscent of the Marques Johnson neck injury during the 1986-1987 season.
At this time, the possibility of a career threatening neck injury is highly doubtful. What we do know is that Walker is currently suffering from concussion like symptoms. He is being transported to a hospital for further evaluations. However, the GCSN family would like to extend our positive thoughts to Kemba Walker this evening.
